Purple Belt 


Hey there, I’m Henrijs and I’m stoked to be one of the NoGi cover instructors at Ground Hammer TC. My journey in martial arts started back in 2016 when I decided to give Muay Thai a shot. Little did I know, this would lead me down the path of MMA, where I’ve had the opportunity to participate in Muay Thai and K1 fights, as well as amateur MMA fights.

It didn’t take long for me to realise the significance of grappling in combat sports. Not only is it incredibly effective, but it also demands a lot from you physically. That’s when I embarked on my BJJ journey. Throughout the years, I’ve taken on countless challenges and regularly compete, both in the UK and internationally with an impressive amount of competitive matches claiming prestigious titles along the way.

Lately, I’ve been focusing more on NoGi BJJ. I seek out higher-ranked opponents who have more experience than me, as I believe this is the best way to push the limits of my own game. One of the things I absolutely love about BJJ, aside from the amazing community that spans across the globe, is the fact that there are countless styles within the sport. It’s a logistical and physical skill that caters to different body types, agility levels, and cardio limits. It’s truly a sport for anyone and everyone.

So, if you’re ready to take the leap and discover the incredible world of BJJ, come join us at Ground Hammer TC. We’re here to support and guide you every step of the way. Let’s roll! 🤙🏽
